Following Conor McGregor’s violent tirade, in which the MMA superstar attacked a bus full of UFC fighters by hurling a trolly directly at a passenger window, comes intriguing news, this time from his cross-sport rival. Floyd Mayweather retired immediately after handing McGregor a loss in their boxing super fight, however, mentioned to Jim Gray in his Showtime interview, that he very well may return to professional fighting, although not in the boxing ring, but the octagon — if the price is right, of course.
During the one-on-one interview, Mayweather touched on the likelihood of his return and potentially squaring off against McGregor in mixed martial arts.
The Money Team leader revealed the following to Showtime:
“Retirement has been great. But as you know and everybody knows, I go in retirement, I come back. Is it possible I come back? Yes. But if I do come back it has to be in the octagon.”
“I spoke with my team. I spoke with Al Haymon. Al Haymon says no. I spoke with Showtime. I spoke with CBS. If we can get together with Dana White and the UFC to make a mega-fight happen—one fight—it could be against Conor McGregor. We don’t know.”
